Melbourne-based boat manufacturer Streaker Boats has appointed Terrace Boating as the exclusive Streaker dealer for NSW.

Streaker powerboats are manufactured by L & P Savage Brothers Marine, which prior to the new NSW appointment sold all Streaker production through Streaker Boats, the company’s retail outlet in the Melbourne suburb of Bayswater.

"We were approached by Terrace Boating to become an authorised Streaker dealer," said Leon Savage of Streaker. "We looked closely at our structure and agreed that the time was right to have dealer representation in NSW," he said.

"The NSW market is a significant one and we believe that our customers in NSW would be better supported with a local, solid dealer. Terrace Boating fits the Streaker criteria well."

Both Streaker Boats and Terrace Boating are Yamaha Platinum dealers, and all boats supplied to Terrace Boating will be Yamaha powered boat/motor/trailer rigs.

Streaker said that not only are both companies are committed to selling and servicing the Yamaha brand and offering Yamaha’s YMF finance, but that both are also family owned, with extended family members actively involved in the day to day operation of their respective dealerships.

"One of the strengths of our appointment is that our production and rigging process will continue unchanged," said Savage.

"Every Streaker boat that we build is rigged with a Yamaha outboard engine. The boats that we are supplying Terrace Boating are absolutely identical to the boats that come off the line and wind up on the Streaker Boats showroom floor."

Terrace Boating currently stocks and displays a range of Streaker boats rigged with Yamaha outboards.

"Streaker is a great addition to the range of boats on offer at Terrace Boating," said Peter Padmos, general manager at Terrace Boating.

"We see the Streaker brand as complementing our existing brands at Terrace Boating. Streaker is a great entry level boat, or an ideal boat for someone stepping up from an aluminium dinghy to their first fibreglass boat.

"And the top end of the Streaker range are the exceptional bluewater fishing boats, ideally suited to the open water found offshore Newcastle and the Central Coast of NSW."

Terrace Boating was established 35 years ago on a three acre site at Raymond Terrace, just north of Newcastle. Servicing the greater Newcastle region including the Hunter Valley, the majority of customers are blue-collar workers who demand great value for money from their boating purchase.

"Virtually all of our fibreglass boat customers are salt water boaters," said Padmos. "Most of our rigs are price pointed and packaged with Yamaha two-stroke outboards to give customers best value. We offer Yamaha four-stroke engines as upgrades for those who wish to opt for this technology, which delivers superior fuel efficiency and low emissions.

"A key strength of the Streaker brand is that all boats are complete packages, and they’re ready to go fishing with no more to pay. The Savage brothers who build these boats have been around a long time and as fishermen, they know what customers want from their boats."

Yamaha outboards are available through an Australia-wide network of authorised Yamaha outboard dealers. All Yamaha four-stroke outboards are supported with a full four year manufacturer’s warranty and all two-stroke outboards are backed by a three year warranty (standard conditions apply).
